Pollock’s POV: When It Comes To TNA, Less Is More

February 25, 2008

Welcome to another new feature at Jarry Park. Every Monday, the producer of Live Audio Wrestling and Fight Network Radio, John Pollock, will stop by to deliver his weekly rant on the world of combat sports. It’s a little something we like to call “Pollock’s POV.”

This week, the Prodigy tackles the always head-scratching world of TNA wrestling. As Total Nonstop Action approaches its six year anniversary, the biggest question floating around the wrestling world is what needs to be done to take this promotion to the next level. Striking a deal with Spike TV? Perhaps. Moving to Thursday nights? Maybe. Two hours in prime time? Eh.

So, Pollock has devised a perfect plan that will surely help rise TNA to the top. I can’t think of one person who would not be in favor of this.

John, the floor is yours…

Pollock’s POV – 02/25/08

  3. Holy Shit Thats where I have seen Don West before. He was the infomercial sports memorabilia guy.

  4. Here is my way to get TNA the huge ratings. Stream line the talent. Let some of the wrestlers go that are not helping ratings or PPV buys. Like Dustin Rhodes, Lance Hoyt, Johnny Devine, Kip James, BG James, Raven and a few others. Go all out and sign Hulk Hogan as a spokes person/wrestler. Go all out and sign Bob Sapp. Have Hogan introduce Sapp to the United States. Sapp a mania will sweep the country. With Hogan and Sapp the rating will easily double if not triple. Have Hogan and Sapp to appear on Leno and other talk shows. It’s that simple to drastically increase the ratings and ppv buys. If they can only do two real hard things hire Hogan and Sapp!!!!!

  5. Best way for TNA to save face? Get rid of Russo and do things the way they were that brought them to their television deal and fan base.

    The way I first came into enjoying TNA was the fact it provided good wrestling with decent storylines. They recently leaned more towards the goofy storylines and away from good wrestling.

  6. Definitely a good plan, Lake, but I just don’t see it happening. You can’t build your promotion around a guy who can hardly move in the ring and an unproven commodity. Samoa Joe can be just as effective as Sapp yet he is losing steam every week so I doubt Sapp would fare much better in this climate.

    Amen, Matt, Amen. However, as long as they continue pulling 1.1’s that isn’t going to happen. And sometimes I am not so sure Russo is the ONLY one to blame.

  7. Two minutes on Thursday in primetime on Spike isn’t good enough. They need two minutes on Thursday in primetime on Spike LIVE.
